A Theology for the Social Gospel
By Walter Rauschenbusch

Walter Rauschenbusch’s work as a pastor in Hell’s Kitchen in New York City gave him the passion to imagine and work for a world as it ought to be. His vision of the Kingdom of God inspires me daily.


Frankenstein
by Mary Shelley

 

FREE Kindle ebook!

This masterpiece originated from a competition among writers to see who could write the best horror story. Mary Shelley presented this work that always keeps me pondering what it means to be human in light of new technologies.


JANE EYRE
by Charlotte Bronte

I read Jayne Eyre in high school, and I will always be thankful for how formative it was for me. Though I was growing up in a repressive religious tradition, this book taught me how to question religious, gender and class norms.
